As seasons change and cool weather approaches, people start wanting to know more about home backup generators — their benefits, how they work, and how much they cost. We have some information for you on natural gas backup generators, an efficient and reliable power solution for your home.
1. Convenience: Natural gas generators provide a continuous supply of power. Forget about fuel storage or manual startup; these generators kick into action automatically during a power outage. They require less maintenance compared to portable generators, offering an easy, hassle-free solution to power disruptions.
2. Energy Savings: Natural gas is an efficient fuel choice, often cheaper than gasoline or diesel. This translates to significant savings in the long run, especially during extended power outages.
3. Green: Natural gas generators burn cleaner than their gasoline counterparts. Opting for natural gas helps reduce your carbon footprint and contributes to cleaner air quality.
4. Better Safety: Natural gas generators are safe and reliable. They’re installed professionally and designed to comply with all local building codes. There's also no need to store large amounts of fuel, reducing the risk of potential fire hazards.
Once installed by a professional, using a natural gas generator is simple. When the power goes out, the generator detects the disruption and automatically starts running. It begins supplying power to your home within seconds, ensuring you can carry on with your day unaffected.
When the main power supply is restored, the generator automatically switches off and returns to standby mode, ready for the next power interruption.
The cost of a natural gas generator can vary depending on size, power output, and additional features. While the upfront cost may seem steep, the peace of mind, convenience, and potential savings during a power outage make it a worthwhile investment.
In addition, there will be a need for professional installation. At SCANA, we recommend Canter Power Systems, a trusted provider of home backup generators. They ensure your generator is properly installed and ready to provide seamless power during an outage.
